Python Package Index hostname change

The Python Packaging Index (the software formerly known
as Cheeseshop) is now available at

http://pypi.python.org/pypi

The old addresses (www.python.org/pypi, and
cheeseshop.python.org/pypi) will continue to work,
either as aliases or using HTTP redirections.

The software was renamed to its old name
(PyPI - Python Package Index), as the Cheeseshop
name was ever confusing people unfamiliar with
British television comedy sketch (and puzzling
even to people familiar with the sketch, as
you *can* get packages from the package index).

If you would like to discuss PyPI and its future,
please join catalog-sig at python.org.

Regards,
Martin
